when ambassador stevens lost his life he was torteured. >> i have reports that the body was torteured. it is not a pleasant thing to talk about. and seals that were there were not part of the security force and on a different mission and the seals run to the sound of fire. they did their job and duty and were great americans and unfortunately it was not a spontanous attack when ambassador rice said it was a spontanous even and our relationship with israel and never been better. that is misleading. our relationship with israel is strained . they are preparing to do a unilateral attack and our position over seas is dangerous and fragile. >> brian: we understand that intercepts show groups were talking to each other and bragging after the killing of four americans, including the ambassador and two navy seals and it makes it seem that an operation is under foot and it seems there is a special operation to go get these goys. would you support that? >> absolutely. you have to show leadership and policy of appeasement of apology doesn't work. our friends over seas understand strength and ame
on in benghazi. >> if you watch the president you notice he saw the foreign service that chris stevens our ambassador who murdered provided to the united nations and united states as well he talked glowingly of mr. stevens. it is odd that the day he was murdered mr. obama did the fund raising event on the day of the murder. >> brian: i thought it was interesting he said he was a christian and that was news to madonna who called him a black muslim. we are not sure. the speech was direct and half to the domestic audience and half to the world and meandering and like his speeches could be 10 minutes shorter. >> gretchen: is that politicians in general. >> brian: i thought mitt romney at the clinton initiative was more direct and offered a solution. we should linkk our foreign aid to the behavior of the countries many of which blow up our embassies. >> gretchen: if you are strat jizing for obama you coast until the election because he is ahead in the polls. that's what they tell somebody. for mitt romney, you got to point out solution and point out the differences and especially in the debates
that and of course, now we know from ambassador stevens' diaries that he was concerned about the security. all of us knew about these militias, some had been infiltrated by al-qaeda radical islamist elements. there is allegations, i don't a former gitmoue, one of the detainee. >> brian: that is in our report, we're standing behind it. you always tell it like it is. the fact is that were they flat outlying or you believe they were that much in the dark? i don't know what's worst, but i want to know your opinion. >> i have no idea. look, you got to put this in context very quickly. iraq, after sacrificing over 4,000 lives, is deteriorating. al-qaeda is back there. iranian airplanes are flying with airplanes. afghanistan, they just had a very sophisticated attack on one of the most heavily defended bases. six aircraft, $200 million were just lost. we can't train and organize with them. iran does not believe we are going to attack and of course, in syria, 25,000 people have been massacred. the president for the first time spoke up on their behalf, but didn't say we would do anything about it. >> brian:
christopher stevens and when they knew it. that is the context of benghazi gate. let's take it from the beginning. it happens on september 11th and spilling into september 12th. because as brian reminded people i do have some experience in that violent and chaotic country. let's give the administration the benefit of the doubt in the first 24-48 hours of the fog of war. there were the simultaneous events in the other countries, so there could have been some connection to the film initially. that is wednesday, thursday, certainly by the time ambassador rice speaks on all the sunday talk shows on september 16th. it must be clear to her and to the administration at that point that what happened several days before was not the spontaneous response of a mob reacting to hateful film. the reason we call it benghazi gate, it contains the grim prospected that the administration should have known -- and ambassador rice came out. >> last night. two incredible stories, 24 hours of those attacks the administration knew. u.s. officials knew. >> you know, be logical. 24 hours after the event in be
attack in benghazi. the personal body guard for ambassador christ chris stevens so far away, he had to dash across the compound under gun fire. witnesses say attackers hit all three entrance at the consulate at the same time. they also identified the attackers as members of ansar al-shariah, known islamist militant. those are your headlines. now time to bring in dana perino and finds out the real reason she was sticking out her tongue. >> i'm tired. [ laughter ] >> steve: just like that. >> i was being a brat. >> steve: that's okay. let's talk to you about what the story that the administration has had regarding what gretchen was just talking about with the attacks on our consulate where four americans were murdered. in the beginning they said because of that movie, spontaneous. within 24 hours, they knew that it was terrorism connected perhaps to an al-qaeda affiliate. and we've had mayor rudy guiliani on. we just had lieutenant colonel allen west on the channel. they both say there has been a cover-up on the part of the white house. >> it certainly is very curious that if they kne
